I'm just restoring this for an 'Eroica' bike, non aero levers, sprints etc.

Anyone have any info on the frame? 'Colombo'.

Something to do with Cinelli? It has a nice 'ting', Gipiemme dropouts 26.6 seatpost

Nice groupset, but will fit period SR crank and derailleurs.

Dunno if this helps but:

'”I want to do business in iron and steel and make a fair and honest profit,” wrote Angelo Luigi Colombo, aged 27, to the lessee of what was shortly to become A.L. Colombo’s small factory' - Columbus tubing.

So would make a guess the bike is constructed with Columbus tubing...

Very nice - but do you have to wear a dirty old rain-coat to ride it? :wink:

'Oh, and just another thing.........................'

Looking forward to seeing it 'restored' to L'Eroica standard.
